Hungry Mum out & about: New Ikea catalogue launch – I wait all year for this

19 Aug

I am an Ikea junkie and my home is a shrine to flatpack Swedish furniture. It is no exaggeration to say that each year at around this time I peer hopefully into my letterbox, waiting for the new catalogue to be delivered. So you can imagine my excitement when I was recently invited to the Sydney launch of the 2013 Ikea catalogue. And when I was given a copy of the ‘style bible’ to take home before it was released to the general public, I almost had kittens.

Here are some snaps from the night. Keep an eye out for this lovely little booklet, which should be winging its way to you very soon.

      Just think how much money you can save by not having Ikea! I spend a fortune there on stuff I don’t really need but just *have* to have!

        Hahaha…very true. I understand perfectly how you feel because whenever I travel to Spore (the nearest Ikea I can find) I always try to sneak peak and end buying stuff that “just have” to have 😉

    I’m officially super, super jealous!!! Ikea is a shrine to so many and I know that I get a little too excited whenever I see a catalogue. Once there was only one catalogue at work and we all kept passing it around like folks trying to get their furniture fix, lol 🙂

      Trust me – everyone at the launch was ubercool and laid back, I was practically hopping around with excitement! It was lovely & I could talk Ikea all day long 🙂

    Love IKEA too. My whole apartment (except the kitchen) is IKEA. This year the catalogue was about 10 days late than usual here in Austria. Waited so hard for it…

      Same! [except even my kitchen is Ikea!]. If they branched out in cars I’d probably buy one of those, too.

    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
